The birthday gift of a great camera was all the motivation I needed to expand my horizons beyond family snapshots. I read all the books I could find and took rolls of slide and print film. I wanted more out of my photos. After many classes and field trips with Gary Thompson, I learned to actually see things around me, whether far away or right under my nose. I learned to critique my work more thoroughly, and to look for the unexpected. Most of all I learned the patience to wait for a shot, though it is a skill I need more time to master. There is nothing I enjoy more than heading out for an unhurried photo expedition, whether it’s far away from home or right in my front yard. I get great joy from the moments of creativity in my life. I hope the future allows me to continue to explore the world with a purpose, camera in hand, to capture the beauty in the people and places I’m lucky enough to experience.
